Expedition result
Expedition 322 conducted riserless drilling to investigate input material before being transported to the seismogenic zone for large earthquakes. The drilling operations were carried out at Sites C0011 and C0012 in the Shikoku Basin, the back-arc basin of the IZU-Bonin volcanic chain, where the Philippine Sea plate dives down at Nankai Trough.
